It's sad that it took over 3 years to realize that it was a
mistake to change the look of the NOPD uniform.
Granted,the possibility of lost or damaged uniform parts
falling into the wrong hands was real,changing the uniform was not the answer.The powder blue shirt and
dark pants were and always should be the trademark of
our department.I look back over the years my brother &
sister officers and I wore them proudly and hope that fu-

Such a distinctive uniform tradition should not end with-
out input from everyone affected by such a decision.
Thanks to those responsible for setting things right again.
